After a European tour to Munich, Istanbul, Cologne, Budapest, and Lisbon, Noordkaap is coming home with an extensive overview exhibition in October. A selection of artworks that was created during the tour, will be on view in Dordrecht for two weeks. Various locations in the city center set the stage for international exchange between the artists and you! With guided tours, performances, film screenings, and more.
Many international artists, designers, art institutions, writers and social partners crossed the border with us for this traveling exhibition. The tour focused on socially relevant themes such as the economic crisis, national identity, urban development, democracy, populist imagery and hope! Noordkaap explored the theme Populism, and how this reflects on everyday life, art, culture and politics in various European countries.

Eieren voor je geld

On Saturday, October 13, an extraordinary folk spectacle will take place, inspired by responses to artworks in Dordrecht's public space. The play 'Eieren voor je geld' (Eggs for your money, Dutch saying for the easy way out) is directed by artist Hans van den Ban, our man behind SuperLaTief, 2008. Once again, Hans connects unexpected elements, artists and audience.
Gijs Frieling creates the stage, and actors of theater group Toendra play the Harlequin, a headmaster, an art director, the pierrot, the artist and Jan Klaassen. The story is strewn together by Tedje Hausmacher (also known from the Dutch comedy duo Rembo & Rembo), and in between scenes the audience can sing along with folk singer Ed Palermo. There will be three performances at 't Hof in the city center, close to the weekly market, so all people in Dordrecht can choose the easy way out.
What is it, people of Dordrecht? A conspiracy against art on the streets? Fear of the unknown? Where are the wide open vistas of yesteryear? Do you want to return to the time before the merchants, the adventurers and the sailor mobs, before the time of the flapping sails... Reed cutting and weaving baskets? Do you want to return to the swampy moors?...
From 'Eieren voor je geld', Hans van den Ban
Come one, come all!

In the evening October 13,  Noordkaap offers a long table with many guests, audience, and great food, recitals, and discussions. Details to follow, as usual, at the last minute... If you want to reserve a spot at the table, please email us at
